Course Overview

This general introductory course provides some basic engineering concepts needed to understand how a power plant works, followed by a general overview of coal-fired power plant layout and operating principles. All major systems in the power plant will be discussed all the way from coal handling to the generation of electricity. Relationships between power plant systems will be illustrated. Focus will be on simple presentation of complex engineering ideas, so attendees are not required to have an engineering or scientific background.
